Lots has happened since our last post. Annabeth had her sixth-month check-up with her new doctor in Wylie. Dr. Richardson said that she is growing fine in length and is meeting all her developmental benchmarks. The only concern is her weight. She weighed in at only the fifth percentile. The doc said to start her on baby foods and bring her back in a couple of weeks for a weigh in. Annabeth LOVES to to eat her vegetables. We've tried nearly every kind, and she hasn't disliked any of them. She must get that from Brent since I am such a picky eater.
She hasn't started crawling yet, but I can tell she is so close. She actually does manage to get around but I wouln't call it "crawling." Maybe more like squirming. She has also begun to notice Pedro and thinks he is hilarious. (We use him as an incentive to try to get her to crawl). She loves to tug at his ears and tries to catch his tail when it wags.
Tonight, she showed us her latest trick - laughing hysterically when someone sneezes. We discovered it by accident, but it was so funny we had to recreate it for the camera. See video above.
We miss Shreveport but are adjusting really well here. We can't wait until Christmas when we will get to go home and see both of our families.

The funny part is all the thoughts that went through my mind when I saw him sitting there in the drivers seat. How did he do that? Surely, he couldn't have opened the door. Maybe he crawled underneeath the car somehow. For a second there, he had us all fooled. Our little houdini weenie-dog!

I have to say that it was the single most disgusting experience I've had in a long time. The little monster killed a squirrel, ate the squirrel, and regurgitated its guts all over my mom's rug! How's that for disgusting? It was hands down the MOST revolting mess I have ever had to clean up-and Pedro makes a lot of messes! Needless to say, I haven't let Pedro lick me since then, and I don't know if I will ever be able to get those images out of my mind. I have had nightmares for the past two nights. Oh well-he's our Pedro and we still love him-squirrell guts and all.

Annabeth spent lots of time in her carseat and did amazingly well.
Playing putt-putt together. Brent beat everyone twice!

Anyway-this weekend, Brent and I made the trip to Dallas to check out houses. We are looking in a small subarb called Rowlett. We saw a lot of houses we really liked, but after a while they all started to look the same. Buying a house is such a big decision so we are both a little nervous. If anyone has advice on what to look for, please post it! On Sunday, we visited the Rowlett first ward and really liked it. The people seem super nice, and we really felt welcome. I think we are really going to like it there.
Brent is especially excited because he only has three weeks of classes left. He will graduate Maga Cum Laude so I am very proud of him. We love Shreveport but are ready for him to start this new job in a new city. Both of us have always lived in Shreveport so we are jumping in feet first with our eyes closed! Dallas, here we come!

Mandy, Eden, & Fox. (Eden loved to take care of the babies and always wanted to hold them.)
Ok, I know she's mine so I have to say this, but isn't she Gerber baby material?
